Symphony #19: Movement in Metal

Symphony #19: Movement in Metal

A Poem by Nick Lynott

tribute to trains

The Orchestra of metal and steam 
grudgingly work in cadence 
to set the eighteen car behemoth 
on its long journey. 

The first lurching chug from 
the engine of the California Zephyr 
gives its own commencement 
to the voyage as it pulls 
out of old Union Station, 
where for a while 
it almost seemed at home. 

The metal monster screams as it leaves.
